QR PASS UPDATE – October 2023
It has been brought to our attention that some students are travelling on the peak school time service 37 buses to and from Tuxford Academy using their QR code bus passes, most drivers have been allowing this to happen when in actual fact they shouldn’t be. Passes can only be used on X37s at school time, not the public service 37 buses. If a student is travelling out of peak time for example following after school activities they can then use their QR code to travel on the service 37 as the X37 does not run at these times.
We understand if students are choosing the quieter service 37, this is not a problem, but payment for these journeys needs to be made on the bus. If you have purchased a QR code for your child but they would prefer to use the service 37 instead, please contact us and we can refund your pass.
